Photographer Andy Marquez says I think that in 10 years, 80% of these signs will be gone. They are disappearing from Colorados roadsides at an amazing rate. The result is an astounding record of the past as seen through the eyes of Colorados foremost fine art photographers. In this photojournalistic collection, Andy Marquez hypnotizes you with nostalgic memories and wonder. He creates images that take you on a journey through time.Searching through 300 towns and traveling over 5,000 miles of Colorados primary and secondary roads, Andy spent three and one-half years building this rare collection. Black and white photos reveal 109 images of aging signs that reflect the rapidly diminishing nostalgic past.We hope you enjoy this treasure for your coffee table or even as a traveling companion. Be sure to pass it along to your childrens children.
